THE DREAM I LIVE
I am Solomon Mugambi 20 years from a small village (Ciomporo) locate in Imenti North Constituency in Meru County. I currently study at Technical University of Mombasa doing Bachelors of Technology in Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology.
I come from a humble background whereby my mother is a milk vender whereas my father does not have any income earning occupation. He is an alcoholic thereby is an able to support my mum in raising funds necessary to support my family basic needs.
I have two brothers elder than me who do not earn much. In May 2012 the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK)come to my rescue and offered me a scholarship. It happened on that fateful day my class teacher walked in and generally asked the class a number of questions that only me could answer. She gave conditions required by the required by the NCCK in order for one to qualify for the sponsorship. Since life always gives you what give you what you deserve and not what you demand, I qualified and was asked to attend an interview at the Upper Eastern Region offices in Meru. I passed the interview and was offered with the sponsor programme . That moment I realized had qualified for the program was one of the best moments in my life.
Since that day I knew that now I didn’t have to worry anyone about my fees for the next two years in high school. Therefore I focused all my energy and efforts to my studies. Since I knew that you have to put effort onto something and I was able to attain a B+ in my last exam in nkubu high school.
I have written dream because a wise man once told me that a dream not written is a dream lost. My dream is to become a renowned researcher that is my drive in life since is my passion. As my mentor used to tell while I was a kid, YOUR PASSION WILL ALWAYS MAKE YOU RELEVANT IN LIFE SO FOLLOW YOUR PASSION.
